WPF/Silverlight customise controls

Hi, I have tried searching for a straighforward explanation on how to modify Silverlight Control Templates, specifically the ChildWindow control. Can someone give me a simple step-by-step set of instructions on which files to modify, where they are stored, and how to make them available in the "Add New Item" section in VS2010.

I want to fine tune things like the animated open time, title block etc and save these in a new control available for any new apps.

Thanks.

You're better of using Expression blend for that.  Essentially you can modify the template and blend takes care of mostly everything for you.  Sometimes a control has multiple controls within it (eg: a datetime picker has a text box + arrows + img button etc . . . not to mention all the grids).  You can keep drilling into edit the template you need.

Don't have step by step as I've never done it but hopefully that will get you started in the right direction.
